Doing a little throwback today because I’ve actually been missing my pregnant belly a lot lately. Although having my little guy here with us is the best feeling in the whole world 💕 I loved having him with me all the time. I still can’t believe that such an amazing little human was in my belly that entire time, pregnancy is cray! Anyone else miss being preggo 🤰🏼?
I tried to take early morning classes today and yesterday, and missed both of them due to a combination of poor planning and horrendous traffic. There’s a challenge happening at the studio, and since I’m going to my favorite place this weekend, I wanted to double up so I wouldn’t “miss a class”. Inevitably, I was upset, frustrated, and was hard on myself for so many things the rest of the day. I’ve said this before, but I’m a perfectionist, a busy body, and I love to be in control. So the past two mornings I’ve felt like I failed because now I’m going to be down two days, I had to sit around, and had zero control over the traffic situation. My anxiety shot through the roof and my emotions started to slide to the dramatic dark side of things. I wouldn’t say I’m naturally optimistic about everything, but I’m not a pessimist either. I see the problems, the flaws, and try to say “oh well that kinda sucks...but...” So here we go: I missed my classes, but I was able to have time with Jesus yesterday and today. I was able to write, create, and let my mind dream. I was able to talk longer with the people I love on the phone. I was able to laugh at the morning DJs on the radio (yes I listen to the radio because I have an old car). I was able to learn new choreo for my clients and improve myself as a teacher. I was able to just be for a few minutes before the rest of the day happened.
In college I missed an appointment once (okay way more than once) with a professor, and felt REALLY bad about it. But my professor wasn’t actually upset at all. His response to me was, “you gave me once thing that no one can create...you gave me time.” I’m trying to be more positive about my life, more kind to myself, and give myself a lot more grace. Sometimes it’s easy. Sometimes it’s tough. But through it all I want to keep trying.
They are all mine 🤩😳😍. For a good while I was firmly “one and done”, and then “two and through”. I love being a #momof3 but we’ll see how I feel once my dad (also known as super nanny) leaves 🤣. And if my pregnancies didn’t nearly kill me, I’d be tempted for one more! 🤦🏻♀️
Oh my, where has all the time gone! Yesterday my sweet baby turned 9 and I could not be filled with more emotions. I know that as mamas, each birthday your child has is emotional and makes you think of how much your child has changed, but 9, WOW, 9 is way different for me! She is not a baby anymore, she is not even really a little kid anymore 😩 She is growing up into this little human who is more and more independent with everything, even some of her schooling!!!!! She is smart and stubborn and sassy and opinionated and loving and caring and most of all she is growing in her relationship with God, she has really been an inspiration to me with her relationship with God and she is turning into such a Strong Godly Child. I could not be more proud of this little girl, I love you to infinity Little Baby! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mato plantas. He de confesar que soy reincidente y selectiva en mi acto de asesinarlas... En mi lista de victimas están las Tillandsias y las suculentas, pocas de las que caen en mis manos sobreviven y la verdad es que no se la razón de mi selectivo exterminio. En casa viven alegremente mi monstera, un ficus lyrata precioso, una ceropegia, un crotón.... y más plantas de hoja verde, hasta un bonsai que compré en @leroymerlines y por el que no daba 2 duros. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
¿Alguien sabe el motivo de mi desgracia? Porque lo mejor de todo, es que las dos planta a las que suelo aniquilar me encantan. Y no creo que un exceso de cariño mate, ya que el resto de habitantes verdes vive la mar de feliz. Ayuda por favor!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mientras espero que me aconsejéis cómo redimirme, voy a celebrar que una de las Tillandsias sigue viva y voy a hacerle un columpio de madera para que se sienta como una Reina. ¿Queréis que os enseñe el resultado? ¿O mejor un paso a paso de sencillísimo #diy ?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
¡Feliz jueves amores!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"You will stay true. Even when the lies come. Your Word remains truth. Even when my thoughts don’t line up. I will stand tall on each promise, You made. Let the rest fade away." @hillsongyoungandfree
The lies have been coming these last two days and I could feel a ten pound weight on my chest. #anxiety . This morning I woke up with this song on my mind, and the promise that His Word remains true. He will not let me down, His promises are always Yes and Amen. His Peace is a promise I can keep. I pray that you would be encouraged this morning and that you would know that you are not alone. His peace is a promise you can keep.

🌎🌴Sneak peak with Liz from the U.K who says that utilizing our gifts and walking in our true core purpose can sometimes feel like an aphrodisiac and life full of joy despite external challenges! 🤩
Do you know what that feels like yet? 🍃🌺🍃You know those people that you connect with in 5 seconds....?
🍃🌺🍃Our energy meshes so well that I literally can talk with her all day long despite minor differences!} 🌻 In her full episode Liz, an intuitive empath shares her struggle with antidepressants, severe headaches and classic western medicine and her decision to choose alternative routes, which actually worked better to bring her healing and life fulfillment. She embraces self-love and encourages people, particularly millennials to understand that life can be beautiful once you learn how to walk in alignment with your true self rather than seeking validation from people who may not even be walking in alignment with their true self.

Does it not feel like every year we blink and its suddenly October? Thats all good and well until you have kids, and another October means another year is on its way out and you're uncomfortably close to having two full fledged kids running around instead of two little babies. ❤️😳😱 I'm Completely in love with our fall photos done by @basic_avocado15 of course :)
